View Full Version : <select /> menus getting clipped in Firefox

does Firefox have a general problem with its rendering of <select /> elements? it likes to cut off part of the text for me, like it's not wide enough.

I don't think so. There is a slight problem with the css trick "* {padding: 0; margin: 0}" while using select menus. there's a detailed discussion at MindlessLemming's website, http://leftjustified.net

If it has nothing to do with that css trick, can you tell us where it occurred, etc..

Ah, it is probably Andrew's trick. That makes sense. Thanks for the heads up.

option {margin-right: 0.5em}

option {padding-right: 0.5em}

... works better. using margin, the added margin area is not hilited when hovering over an option with your mouse. so you have a purple bar with an unsightly white margin. ;)
